Dreamlift Day raises more than $115,000 for kids
This year's Wendy's Dreamlift Day is another one for the record books.
The event on Wednesday, Jan. 30, raised $115,027, surpassing last year's record of $114,276. That brings the total over 19 years to $1.22 million.
"It shows the community support and the support of the volunteers and our staff," said Akbal Mund, an area partner with Wendy's.
Funds raised at nine Wendy’s restaurants in the Kamloops, Salmon Arm and the Okanagan helps the Sunshine Foundation take children with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses to Disneyland for a day.
All profits and staff and management wages on Dreamlift Day went to the foundation.
The next scheduled flight to Disneyland is in late 2013.
